Someone has been making an
unholy mess in the University
of Lincoln’s flagship new Art
and Design building. Plaster is
splattered up the glass windows
overlooking the landscaped turf
of the Brayford Pool campus,
home of the new Project Space
Plus Gallery.

Within, bags of plaster spill out
onto the floor, and the resultant
dust is trampled through the
corridors. At points throughout
the gallery, joyous mounds of
solidified plaster rise from the
floor.
A workbench sits unattended
surrounded by various mixing
bowls and apparatus, and nearby
rests an abandoned pair of
shoes. This chaotic scene is the
work of Laura Johnson.
